Erreà (pronounced [ɛr.re.ˈa]) is an Italian sports equipment company supplier founded in Torrile, Italy in 1988. Erreà was the first Italian sportswear company to be accredited with the Oeko-tex standard certification, which assures that garments textiles are free from harmful chemicals.[citation needed]

Background[edit]

Established in 1988, Erreà's world headquarters are in San Polo di Torrile, just outside Parma. It was founded by Angelo Gandolfi, who remains president today.

Erreà entered the English football market in 1994, signing a deal with then Premier League side Middlesbrough that lasted for many years.[1] The company's only other exposure to a Premier League audience began in 2011 when a deal was signed to supply Norwich City with equipment.[2]

It celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2013 with the presentation of its key footballing clients' shirts for the next season.[3] Parma, Atalanta, Norwich City, Brighton, Blackpool, Rayo Vallecano, Numancia, Alcorcón, ADO Den Haag and Nantes were the teams represented.[4]
